Drone Regulation Guideline
Wild Rabbit is an FAA 333 exempted company, approved for closed set filming.
We carry aviation and general liability and aviation insurance.
We handle all the FAA paperwork.
The FAA requires that a Plan of Activities (POA) be submitted for every filming location.
IT’S IMPORTANT TO PLAN AHEAD!
The FAA takes 3 business days to accept a POA.
Signed permission must be obtained from property owners within 500ft of the drone flight before the POA is submitted.
Flight operations must be conducted 500ft from all non-participating persons, vessels, vehicles, roads and structures.
Production is responsible for maintaining a 500ft security perimeter around the drone flight path. Meaning a 100% lock up.
We are generally not permitted to fly within 6 statute miles of a towered airport – however there are certain exceptions.
Cal Trans will not permit drone filming on any state routes (California only). Click here for a list.
The FAA restricts drone altitude to 400ft above ground level.
We are not permitted to shoot at night, however we can shoot in the morning and evening magic hours.
The FAA requires that our pilots operate from a stationary position. We are not permitted to operate from a chase vehicle.
Certain locations produce serious radio interference and may require a radio frequency site survey (transmission towers, metal structures, microwave towers, cell phone towers, dense indoor Wi-Fi network areas etc.).
